    I’ve never had a blizzard but everyone keeps on telling me I should try one…

    Hope your family emergency gets better, just know that life never dishes out anything we can’t handle πŸ˜€ This is only a small (or big…)test of faith.

  • Sarah September 25, 2010, 7:19 am

  • chelsey @ clean eating chelsey September 25, 2010, 8:02 am

    Glad you made it to Florida safely!

    I absolutely love car trip food that I would normally not eat – although for me it’s nothing out of the ordinary because in reality, what CAN a gluten/corn free vegan get on the road?

    But! Back in my meat eating, gluten laden days… I was all over that traveling food!

  • Heather September 25, 2010, 8:14 am

    glad you made it!
    I had an oreo type blizzard yesterday, just needed one haha

  • Jean@RoastedRootsPumpkinSpice September 25, 2010, 8:45 am

    Ooo, I haven’t had a Blizzard in SO long. Those things are so good.

    Glad you made it and hope everything is okay!

  • Angela @ Eat Spin Run Repeat September 25, 2010, 8:55 am

    Glad you made it safely. I hope you’re doing ok, and that everything gets better soon. Praying for ya! πŸ™‚

  • Kris September 25, 2010, 9:26 am

    You and your loved ones are in my thoughts, espec since we did the reverse FL to CLT last week to care for a family member. Be safe and hope there is improvement!

  • Stacey September 25, 2010, 9:35 am

    Please pardon me while I drool all over my computer! That blizzard looks oh-so-delicious. I’m glad you made it to Florida safely πŸ˜€

  • Emily Hanson September 25, 2010, 9:38 am

    I wanted to tell you I saw a sticky note saying “You’re Beautiful!” in my high school’s bathroom yesterday! I didn’t have anything with me that could take a picture, but I thought it was so cool!
    You’re in my thoughts (:

    • Caitlin September 25, 2010, 9:49 am

      Yay I am so glad you found an OB note!

  • Emily September 25, 2010, 9:39 am

  • Camille September 25, 2010, 10:25 am

    Mmm, I haven’t had a blizzard in forever! It looks so good!

  • Jamie September 25, 2010, 10:46 am

    Glad you arrived safely, and sorry to hear about the family member in trouble. Thoughts are with you.

  • Cyndi Eggers September 25, 2010, 11:13 am

    Would u believe I took a girlfriend afternoon yesterday and saw Eat, Pray, Love? We were the only ones in the theater at 10:15am. Good thing cause I was gross and stinky because I had to go straight from an hour of teaching boot camp and an hour of teaching yoga. But it was nice to put my feet up and rest for a few hours – really trying to concentrate on the “resting” phase with my half marathon 8 days away! Tapering is unnerving!

  • Amber K September 25, 2010, 11:14 am

    Glad you have arrived safely. Still thinking and praying for you all.

  • Joanna @ September 25, 2010, 11:18 am

    Love that note and you green smoothie to-go. Also love the idea of a Reese’s Blizzard too. lol.

    Love your blog so much. It’s so inspiring!

  • Julie September 25, 2010, 11:24 am

    You’ve totally put the visual of a HEATH bar Blizzard in my mind now! Hmmm…Is DQ open for breakfast?

  • kelsey September 25, 2010, 11:28 am

    i absolutely love that OB note!!!
    thanks for posting it, as it really hit home to me today. :]

  • Natalia - a side of simple September 25, 2010, 11:31 am

    Blizzards: proof that roadtrips can be devilishly fun alone.

    Glad you’re safe, hope things improve for the family.

  • Katherine @ Left Coast Contessa September 25, 2010, 11:53 am

    Glad you got there safe, that blizzard looks amazing, and that is a great OB note.

  • Kim September 25, 2010, 11:55 am

    Have you had the Reese’s McFlurry at Mcdonald’s? We do not have a DQ close by, so it’s the next best thing. They have a snack size that is just the perfect portion.

  • Maren September 25, 2010, 12:29 pm

    upside down thick? best kind of blizzard there is! πŸ™‚ Glad you made it safely!

  • Alexa @ The Girl In Chucks September 25, 2010, 12:40 pm

    I’ve never had a blizzard. We didn’t get a Dairy Queen around here until within the last 5 years, and since it still is 15 miles away, I’ve still never been.

    Glad you made it to Florida. Hope everything is going okay.

  • Jessica @ The Process of Healing September 25, 2010, 12:46 pm

    I now want a blizzard.
    Glad you made it safe and sound!

  • Chelsea @ One Healthy Munchkin September 25, 2010, 1:05 pm

    I love the idea to get audio books for long car rides. I get so bored driving by myself for hours at a time!

  • sarah k. @ the pajama chef September 25, 2010, 1:17 pm

    hope everything is ok! glad you arrive safely.

  • Kelly September 25, 2010, 2:00 pm

    Can I eat that Blizzard off the screen please. Looks so good. I hope everything is ok with your family.

  • Jasmine @ Eat Move Write September 25, 2010, 2:25 pm

    Be well. The blizzard looks so good. Haven’t had one in yearsssss.

  • Caitlin September 25, 2010, 4:42 pm

    Reeses (and/or Oreo) blizzards are one of my all time favorite foods ever! Whenever I get one, I always eat it reallllly fast and then realize it is gone and feel a little sad.

    Hope everything works out with your family.

  • Diana @ frontyardfoodie September 25, 2010, 5:20 pm

    I would like you blizzard. That’s all.

  • hippierunner September 25, 2010, 5:25 pm

    Hope everything is going okay! πŸ™‚

  • Jolene ( September 25, 2010, 6:56 pm

    Mmmmmmmm, blizzard.

    • eatmovelove September 25, 2010, 8:13 pm

      But it’ll probably be Oreo…love my cookies πŸ˜‰

  • Lisa September 27, 2010, 2:19 pm

    I keep snacks in my car at ALL times just in case. It comes in handy after swimming when I am famished!
